As an episode of a larger, ongoing project, Our Common Ghosts, Christian Nyampeta presents a live audio-visual session of the rushes and glimpses of the previous stagings of this project. The idea of Our Common Ghosts was developed at the inaugural meeting of The Another Roadmap School Africa Cluster at Nagenda International School of Art and Design, Uganda, in July 2015. Since then, Our Common Ghosts has been revisited, staged and presented in different contexts, including exhibitions, colloquia and workshops.
Christian Nyampeta’s work develops an artistic and theoretical enquiry into contemporary African/a philosophy and the ascetic practices of the late antiquities. Through staging workshops and programmes of art and design, Nyampeta’s work creates spaces, times, fictions, models, dialogues and commentaries, concerned with the idea of communality and its discontents. Nyampeta convenes the Nyanza Working Group of Another Roadmap Africa Cluster. He runs Radius, an online and occasionally inhabitable radio station, and he is a research student at the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths, University of London.
